TIL Desk Bollywood/ Actor Kangana Ranaut has said people from the Hindi film industry have ganged up against her for calling them out on “nepotism”. The actor, who was at an event of her latest “Manikarnika”, was asked about the lack of support to her during the film’s promotions.
“How will it benefit me? I’ve already won 3-4 national awards. At the age of 31, I am a filmmaker. Khud ko he promote kar le bohot badi baat hai (it would be a big deal if they can promote themselves).
“Is Rani of Jhansi my aunt? She’s as much mine as she’s yours. Then why are these people scared? They are worried just because I spoke on nepotism? They have formed a gang: ‘Why did she speak on nepotism?”
The actor had sparked a debate on nepotism when she appeared on Karan Johar’s chat show two years ago and started a war of words with the filmmaker after she called him the “torchbearer of nepotism” in the industry for launching star kids.
